    Not IT related but...

    Has anyone got a Citroen C4 or has any views on what they are like? Maybe getting ready to change cars and need some independant views on the C4 as a choice. Was thinking along the lines of a 1.6SX hatchback. Other than that any other choices to consider for that size/engine size of car?

    From what I have heard it is a really good car. Top Gear Magazine recommend the 1.6 HDi model. Alternatives are: Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra, Volkswagen Golf or Toyota Corolla.

    Not a Form man myself and already got an Astra (albeit an S reg). It won't be a new car as I don't have the money even with the new scrapage deal. Had a Toyota Corolla years ago and still say it was the best car fro the money I ever had so far but for a recent model they just keep their price far too well for my limited budget, same goes for the Golf unfortunately.

    I've just sold my 1.6VTR+

    Lots of gizmo's for not a lot of money.
    Nothing went wrong on our car, and we certainly didn't look after it.

    I liked it, it's just the wife wanted a Grand Scenic 7 seater

    Thanks for the replys, been googling around and it seems that the C4 is either a hit or a miss and the main problem people seem to claim is reliability. Undecided now as I have seen a Honda Civic (not the latest model) but a 2.0 S for quite a decent price and not a great deal of mileage.

    Ohh, Go for the Honda. Especially if it's the previous shape (much better design than the current bubble). My last car was a (very old) Civic until it got rear ended, Grrrr. Loved it, beautiful drive and extremely reliable. It was a 'J' reg had no mechanical problems I could point at. Sailed through it's MOT's. My current car is a Toyota and almost as nice to drive. There has to be something said about Japanesse build quality. I'd certainly buy nothing but.

    Know the feeling after having a Toyota, it was light years ahead of the rest of the market at the time (it was a H reg corolla). Had a citroen AX while I went to uni (G reg) and although only a year older there was no comparison in terms of equipment, quality, reliability etc etc. Was spoilt before with a 2.0 GLS Cavalier and the Honda might fit the bill, power and reliability

    Go Japanese. I have a Hyundai Getz (not quite japanese, but near enough), and my boyfriend has had a civic and a integra type R and all are really good for quality, price, reliability.

    I have had three Vauxhall's on the trot. All have done well over 200,000 miles and all have been converted to LPG.

    Not awe enspiring, but reliable and cheap.
